Billy Tea

From my friend Julie in Australia:

. . .oh, you ain't LIVED until you had billy tea. (Or so's I'm told) A billy is what you cook the tea in when you is out camping and sitting around the fire making tea and damper. You throws a bit of tea into the billy, along with the water and you cooks it over the flames hanging off a stick. Then when the tea is boiling you pour it into cups and enjoy. Some peoples throws a gum leaf or two into the billy as well. It's a Aussie thing...

  1. I found it, searching function helps lol. I bought the brand Billy Tea today. I wonder if there are any gum leaves (eucalyptus) in it?
